Description
After creating a "dub" track from scratch, I decided to work backwards and make the original. BTW, I wish I had a real studio.

Lyrics
One thing I could not figure out, how could you leave this world for your kids
Then I began to think about who your father was and what he did
Creating suffering has become the family biz
Meanwhile you spoon-feed the have mores and treat the rest of us like idiots

But I still know when you’re lying
It’s only every time you speak
When there are so many dying
I wonder how can you sleep

Your legacy will be a tragedy, a tale of power gone awry
Fortunately you have the cabinetry to blame it on the other guy
You sell Democracy and you sell it to your friends
Then you get away with it by screening questions at a press conference

But I still know when you’re lying
It’s only every time you speak
When there are so many dying
I wonder how can you sleep

But I still know when you’re lying
It’s only every time you speak
When there are so many dying
I wonder how can you sleep

You had the opportunity to do so many wonderful things
I’m sure that Haliburton if allowed would see to it you were made King.
How is it the bombs fell before forced inspecting
If that is your last resort, than I swear I am surrendering

But I still know when you’re lying
It’s only every time you speak
When there are so many dying
I wonder how can you sleep

Napping all the way to the bank
I really like the song. The bass line and melody are smooth and catchy.
I think the fx during the chorus sticks out a little much.

I would say that your performance sounds a little like walking on egg
shells. You have a great voice. You should try another take with more
confidence and gusto. I'd also try dropping the vocals a little in the mix
and raising the guitar and keyboard. This is a great little tune that
would really shine with a bit of a shot in the arm.

nice
liking this bob. your voice is nice. i could see how you could maybe get a little more of a powerful take, but its great as it is. im known for having confidence in my voice issues and not singing all out enough, seems i either sing all out or sing in tune lol. like the words.

Satire and protest combine nicely
I really dig the clarity, transparency of the production, your great vocals,
the mixture of humor and almost cheap silliness that adds to the concept
of the song. Satire and protest make a great combo, and the dub feel is
just right. I like the laid back vocals, by the way, the almost don't care
sense, borders on disdain. Nice.

love it
I don't know whether to giggle or start praying, there is something wry
about this song, the reggae chorus gives it a light sparkle but underneath
there is a serious perspective. Really like this very tight mix.Excellent
